It happened, it did. Donald Trump won the presidential election, Republicans are going to control every branch of government. How did we let this happen?
I’ll tell you how. We stood up. We reached out. And we handed it to them on a gold platter.
I bet every liberal reading this is saying, “What? We did no such thing! We fought our asses off.”
Well, you didn’t. How do I know? Because I didn’t.
I didn’t fight in this election, I thought that I could simply sit out and wait. I was sure that I didn’t have to do anything other than vote in order for the Democrats to win this election.
We thought that Democrats were more popular than they are, we had grown so complacent with the Obama presidency that we forgot that election time is war time. We forgot that we had to actually fight for the White House, we forgot that we didn’t control everything.
Look, I know what you're thinking, “I did everything that I could! I’m just one person!” and I know, it’s not possible for any one person to make things happen. However, it is all of our faults. The Democratic Party is corrupt, liberals are lazy in politics, and we didn’t fight hard enough.
Petitions, facebook posts, and other forms of protests that distance themselves from the actual issues are ineffective in the grand scheme of things. We need to make this country aware of the issues that we care about. Think back to the civil rights movement and the movement for women's rights. People made sure that no one was able to ignore those issues, we protested, we led massive sit-ins and marches. The Democratic Party needs to be more like this.
